Hail, one and all!

Apparently, I joined this website's forums just a bit shy of six and one-half years ago. I finally managed to obtain broadband Internet access earlier this year, and while I have only visited this site a few times, since then, it is very much my desire to become a much more frequent visitor to this site. Why? Because, I just plain love maps.

Unfortunately, I suck at making maps (or at any artistic undertaking, apparently). It's just not my forte'. Nonetheless, I have great admiration for the handiwork of several who have shared their artistic cartographic masterpieces here, Some of them are truly breathtaking!

Anyway, my name is Charles, and it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, one and all. I hope to see you in the forums, and your maps in the gallery.
